Fifteen people were injured when a tram crashed at Universal Studios Hollywood on Saturday night, according to authorities.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department shared on social media that it responded to the theme park just after 9 p.m. for reports of a crash.

At the scene, located on Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood, first responders said they found 15 people with minor injuries following a collision involving a studio tour tram. They were all transported to local hospitals for treatment, officials said.

It wasn’t immediately clear what led to the crash and how many trams were involved, but the California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.

A spokesperson with Universal Studios Hollywood shared in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Saturday night, “There was a tram incident at the theme park tonight that resulted in multiple minor injuries, confirmed by the LA County Fire Dept. We are working to support our guests and understand the circumstances that led to the accident.”

Universal Studios tour is one of the theme park’s most popular attractions, taking riders on a one-hour backlot tour to see behind the scenes where some of Hollywood’s most memorable films and television shows were filmed. Some of the movie sets featured in the tour are Jaws and Jordan Peele’s Nope.

Starting next week, Universal Studios Hollywood is also celebrating the 60th anniversary of the ride, which they called the “World-Famous Studio Tour,” after its debut in 1964.
